Additional Info

His first new play in 400 years! This tale of forbidden love and political intrigue fuses the texts of Shakespeare's two well-known tragedies into a new classic with unexpected plot twists. A young boy falls in love with the Roman Emperor, and all hell breaks loose. Controversy reigns in ancient Rome when a popular openly-gay politician takes as his lover the son of a homophobic arch-rival. Hate begets hate as a very public bashing/assassination leads to a civil war and murder-suicide. Romeo and Julius [Caesar] intertwines two of Shakespeare's best known plays in an original work, which casts new perspective on the original texts, and a new light on our own modern problems. The first play offered in a new series of collaborations between Jeff Goode and Shakespeare.
